BMC issues notice to contractor for failing to phase-out the Deonar dumping ground

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday issued notices to M/s Tatva Global Renewable Energy Co. Pvt Ltd for failing to phase-out the Deonar dumping ground and related contracts.

The contractor, in 2009, was given a contract to carry out partial closure of the Deonar dumping ground and simultaneously put up two compost plants for processing of municipal waste of 1000 metric tonne capacity each. Similarly, in Mulund, they were required to set up a bio-methanation plant for waste processing.

'However, despite continuous follow-up, both the operations were not started as both of them have not proceeded beyond shifting of waste.

Therefore Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) has taken the decision to terminate both the concession agreements,' said a statement issued by the civic body.

The BMC now wants to close the Mulund dumping ground in phases.
